No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bites

So, I have a problem.

I am addicted to these tasty little treats. I eat them all day long – at my desk, on the metro, during movies. Ob. Sessed. Last week I tried out this recipe for Book Club and promptly made two more batches the next night.  They are seriously little energy balls that are good for a melty dessert or when you want to grab a sweet and crunchy snack out of the fridge or freezer.

You can find the original recipe (along with other healthy recipes) at How Sweet It Is.

Makes 12-15 bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds

Directions:

Mix oats, chopped almond slivers, salt, cinnamon, flaxseed, and chia seeds in a large bowl.

In a smaller separate bowl, melt peanut butter in the microwave for about 40 seconds. Allow it to cool slightly for a few minutes, then stir in the honey and  vanilla extract.

Pour over the oat mixture and mix well. Once everything is mixed together, fold in the chocolate chips.

Roll dough into balls, then roll the balls in ground almonds.

Tuna says, “it tastes like a Reeses Cup!”
